Huckabee denies report Trump chose him as ambassador to Israel – THE JERUSALEM POST
The Daily Mail had initially cited the source as saying Huckabee’s first order of business as ambassador would be transferring the US embassy in Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Huckabee met with the president-elect Friday at Trump Tower in New York. When asked by reporters why he was meeting Trump, Huckabee said “I’m just here for the Starbucks,” the Daily Mail reported.
He further stated that “the only person giving out jobs in this building is President-elect Donald Trump, not me.”
Israel’s ambassador to the US Ron Dermer had reportedly met with several ambassadorial candidates on Thursday and offered Trump his advice for the post, according to the Daily Mail.
